This game simulate the chance to hit side armor right? Although T80U's formation is 5km away from your M1's formation, there is still a chance to hit the side, one or two M1's turret might point to other direction try to kill targets there, or make a right/left turn to pass an obstacle.
tandem warhead is good to against ERA armor, but from what I know I don't think it has advantages against composite armor. Most part of M1A1(HA)'s front have more than 1000mm RHA vs HEAT type ammo. But there are 3 week spots, Commander hatch, Front upper hull and gun mantlet.
Even the enemy didn't achieve the penetration, they are still be able to disable your M1's gun, knock out the track, make your M1 incapable to keep in the battle
Sir? Do you want to order a Kung Pao Chicken or a Kung Fu Chicken?
